Last Thursday at 5 in the morning Jake and I took off to Canada for a family wedding. It was our first trip away from Charlie for more than one night. It was so hard leaving him behind but he just had a BLAST with his grandparents.
It was Jake's side of the family we went to go visit. We stayed at one of his aunt and uncles home on 40 acres of beautiful land full of raspberries, rhubarb, and saskatoons (like a blueberry). I feel 100 pounds heavier from the one too many slices of homemade pie and sweet teas I had on the front porch! There is nothing like staying with family. With the sunsetting around 10pm, we were chipping golfballs around in the front yard, sitting by the firepit watching the sunset, hanging with cousins till late at night, and going on walks where you talk so much you lose track of time. You just can't do those things in a hotel.
I cannot wait to go back but the next time Charlie will have to come with us.
